There are many times I pass an old desk, or dresser on the side of the road that is beyond my tender loving care, but the drawers are salvageable. I pluck each one, no matter what size, and stack ‘um in the shed.
Like I’ve showed you before, the larger ones I use as pet beds http://thedecorativepaintbrush.blogspot.com/2010/07/drawer-full-of-possibilities.html or for bigger storage (pet toys, blankets and magazines) but the smaller ones are created into a variety of storage containers. You can use them for…
• Remote controls
• Incoming/Outgoing Mail
• Desk/Office Supplies
• Cotton Balls/Q-tips
• Rolled up hand towels
• Makeup/Nail polish
• Picnic Items
• Napkin Holder
• Homework supplies
• Small toys (Barbie/Brat shoes & accessories)
So when a customer asked me if I could do a fall/Halloween type table for her home, I was thrilled! I’d really never done anything like that before. Sure, I’d used “fall” colors but never really a Halloween theme.
If you’ve been following me for awhile you know that this is one of my “favoritest” tables to use.
• It comes with its own packaging too, which is great for shipping purposes (If you have ever tried to ship furniture you know how awesome this really is).
• I buy the table from an unfinished wood furniture shop right around the corner from where I live, so it’s convenient. (Like I’ve said before, I love to reuse and restyle furniture, but every once in awhile I break down and have to buy a piece, but the good news is even though they are all the same style of furniture ever design is totally unique)
How I achieved this look!
I’m really pleased with the end result. I hope she will like the way it turned out.
